Interested in aluminum can recycling? An article from The Aluminum Association said it best: “The amount of energy saved just from recycling cans in 2011 is equal to the energy equivalent of over 17 million barrels of crude oil. That’s the amount of oil needed to fuel more than 1 million vehicles on the road for 12 months.”
That might be old news, but since math and oil don’t change much, don’t forget that on Wednesdays you can come down to Raleigh Metal Recycling at 2310 Garner Road, Raleigh, NC, and have a scrap metal recycling party with us! Get $0.03 extra per pound for coming in and scrapping aluminum cans TODAY and EVERY Wednesday, at one of the best places for scrap recycling in Raleigh, NC. Then watch the cans go through one of our favorite machines on the yard, the can machine, which will crush your cans, shuttling them out the other side.
Aluminum can recycling toward the end of the process
Processors will quickly make that fresh pile of recycled beverage cans into other aluminum products for upcoming generations, as you can see below.
And if you don’t have a bundle of cans, no problem! We love waste metal collection of all types. Do some brass recycling when you bring in your loads. Any other scrap aluminum? No problem. How about some old aluminum siding? Bring it on down to the yard, where other scrap metal like electric motors are just as welcome, too.
